From behind his TVAM moniker, producer Joe Oxley reappears with his debut album ‘Psychic Data’ which will be released on Friday 19th October 2018.
The first single from the upcoming album is ‘These Are Not Your Memories’, a crushing yet soft approach to synth and guitars. As if Godflesh had started a pop act.
Crafting a world which touches on our memories but toys with our fears, a world in which information seeps under your door and pools by your feet, a world in which he seeks to define everything from abandoned meanings to subconscious desires, PSYCHIC DATA invites us to experience the psychodrama first hand.
Self-produced and home-recorded, the album was mixed by the steady hands of Dean Honer (Moonlandingz, I Monster, Add (N) To X) – “It was great working with Dean. I’m a massive Add N To (X) fan and knew he’d get where I was coming from after hearing what he was doing with Moonlandingz.”
Somewhere within a lifetime of repeats, reruns and reboots, TVAM lives, crafting sounds and visuals which touch on our memories but toy with our fears. A world in which broadcast becomes performance. Hypnotic tracks which straddle an impressive spectrum of influence; with Boards of Canada’s irresistible nostalgia, Suicide’s deconstructed rock’n’roll and MBV’s infinite noise all becoming touching points in Oxley’s musical output.
